Question Vibration while accelerating

I own a TJ '97 and im getting a vibration when I accelerate. When I rev the engine in neutral it does not seem to vibrate only when I step on the gas rolling in any gear in gear, specially in 2nd and 3rd. I think flywheel could be a possible cause...Any leads?

Have you had your tires balance recently? That can make it shaky at certain speeds.

Have you recently done any work to the Jeep? What makes you think the fly wheel could be the culprit? From what you describe it sounds like it could be the rear drive shaft or bad rear pinion angle. Possibly a broken trasmission mount.
